After waiting for 6 years, the ‘Korean Dream’ has come true. Mongolian volleyball players Eddy Zargacha (24, 1m98cm) and Bayarsaihan Batsu (25, 1m97cm) will play side by side on the Korean professional stage.

Men’s volleyball Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance nominated Eddy as the first overall pick in the Asian Quarter Draft held at the Jeju Sun Hotel on the 27th. OK Financial Group, which obtained the 4th nomination right, selected Bayarsaihan.

The two players from Mongolia came to Korea in January 2017 and entered Suncheon Jeil High School. It was to play in Korea, where the level of volleyball is higher than that of Mongolia. After graduating from high school, the two went on to Sungkyunkwan University and Inha University, respectively. There was a condition that a foreign player had to live in Korea for at least five years in order to naturalize as a Korean citizen. So, after graduating from college, they planned to go to the V-League draft. 온라인카지노

However, as the requirements for naturalization became more stringent, the two could go pro only as foreign players. If you compete with world-class players in the United States and Europe, it was difficult to be certain of advancing to the pros. Then, the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) decided to draft an Asian player for the first time since its professional launch in 2005.
